Orange shows first own, cheap Android smartphone

UK wireless provider Orange has revealed the first in a new range of affordable Android-powered devices with the San Francisco. It will cost the equivalent of $154 on pay-as-you-go plans and sports a 3.5-inch, 480x800 touchscreen and a 600MHz CPU. When it ships, it will use Android 2.1 and have an integrated FM radio and GPS sensor.

The device doesn't cut all features to reach its price, as it has a 3.2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G network support. Just 150MB of storage is built-in, but a microSDHC card slot supports as much as 32GB of extra space. A 2GB microSD card is bundled with the phone.

The handset ships to Orange later this week.
